A Bendigo teen may have set two personal best times on the Rubik's Cube at the World Cubing Championships.
Brian Allen qualified to compete in the 3x3 and 2x2 against other cube champions at the worldwide event in Melbourne.
At his best, Brian has solved a 3x3 cube in 10.66 seconds. The thirteen-year-old has been solving cubes for just 18 months.
He didn't perform quite as he hoped at the championship, but set a couple of official PBs.

Brian said he had fun and was proud to have participated in the competition.
"I learnt that you don't always win, and sometimes the best you can do is in your dreams, but it's all about having fun," he said.
Mum Judy Allen said the competition had been a big learning curve for Brian.
"He had a ball ... we think he's walked away with one, maybe two personal bests officially," Mrs Allen said.
"It was just amazing to watch records be broken. He was rapt to meet some of his idols."
Mrs Allen hopes to eventually begin an official Rubik's Cube solving event in Bendigo.
